it was beautiful this morning and I was very excited to open the screen door for the first time this year…

sadly my son-in-law was working days this weekend so I knew he couldn’t come and help me in the garden

called my grandson and he and a friend came over and spent the day… they raked the garden and put out furniture while I cleaned up the planters from last year and washed a number of tables… then we moved to the front where we cut back wild roses… got rid of grass…   

laid wet newspaper, and put down 16 bags of rubber mulch… 

was so happy to get this done… bought the first ten bags of mulch last summer… ran over and got more as we worked… slurpees for the boys on our way home from Home Depot, a short rest and they then spent a couple of hours working on the pond…  they had lots of fun…

the little boys arrived just before 5 and they trimmed the Virginia creeper…

had a short visit from my sister-in-law and nephew in the tidied garden…

had pizza for supper when the daddy arrived and he changed my tires so now the car has the pretty wheels on it again…

everyone headed home and I am laying on the bed watching tv…

opened the screen door at 8:30 in the morning and closed it twelve hours later… yay…

busy, warm and very productive day…
